    Screwed

    So far i have tried to get this screw on my alternator cover out using and easy-out, a spiral extractor (which snapped off inside where i had drilled), and an impact driver. It is soaked in a lubricant to try and break down whatever is seizing it. Any other thought as to what I can do to break it free, other then to drill it out and retap the hole with a larger screw?

    Damn, I thought that would work...

    Keep drilling until the head falls right off that screw, and once the cover is removed, you'll be able to unscrew what's left of it by hand.

    I think this is cause for Judey to resume his normal drinking posture.

    i did the same to a screw on my oil filter cover, and i used a reverse drill bit to drill it out, and when it just barely cut through the head material it caught and backed it out.

    It came out as i was drilling it out with a easy-out. I was just trying to drill the head off with the biggest bit I had and just about when it had drilled off the head, it backed itself out. Any idea, other then the hardware store, where I can pick up SS hex bolts to replace them with?
